    Debating picking this up, real quick question and sorry if this has been asked before but so you need PS Plus to do the asynchronous multiplayer stuff in this game?

    sounds like you don't need ps plus for any of that to work

    Low Roar's "Don't Be So Serious" opening track seems pretty apt considering just how absolutely ridiculous this is. Fucking like, 30 minutes in and there's a dude named Deadman and Monster Energy drinks and water bears that you eat I love this

    I know it’s bad for you but I kinda enjoy watching Sam eat shit.

    The only time I have dropped cargo so far is I came to too quick a stop trying to activate a terminal and fell straight on my ass.

    Who'd have thought a game where you (Norman Reedus) chug Monster and schlep comically large packages up mountains could be so engaging.

    It's melancholy, it's weird af, and somehow the perfect balance of stressful and relaxing.

    Only taken one major tumble so far...on flat ground. Got cocky, tripped, and dropped...so much stuff.

    What makes walking in this game tricky and engaging?

    Balance and terrain. You must strategically load Norman Reedus up like a gruff, sexy pack mule and try and navigate rough landscapes without tipping over from the weight of 15 packs of lost underwear and tumbling down a sheer cliff.

  • hatedinamericahatedinamerica Registered User regular
    What makes walking in this game tricky and engaging?

    Short answer: balance and momentum

    And the terrain design probably? I'm still only in chapter 2 I think, so I'm not totally sure yet.

    Also not falling down is incentivized, so there's that element where you don't want to fall and ding up all your stuff (or lose it, heaven forbid!)

    I'd like the opening chapters of this game a lot more if Sam didn't spend the first hour constantly telling people he doesn't want to do things.

    Took me a second to realize this was a figure of speech.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Question for people who finished the first BT encounter
    Is that one supposed to be especially difficult? It seemed like crouching did almost fuck all and that is almost impossible to find a safe way around them. I had to fight my way out of a puddle twice.

    I've encountered BTs three times so far and have yet to get caught

    I watch that flapping signal like a hawk (which gets much harder when you have a lot of shit on your back blocking your view, by the way!) and basically never stop moving

    I feel like every single cutscene leading up to the actual BT encounter led me astray in terms of how I'm supposed to deal with them. I figured if one is really close I just stop and hold my breath and it'll go away after a while!

    It will not.

    Crouch, hold your breath, keep moving, breath for just a second when you get down to a quarter stamina, and keep moving. There’s a lag between your breath and the hit, so it become a game of gasp and dodge.

    I’m about 3 hours in

    What in the fuck

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the ending is similar to
    2001 A Space Odyssey

    Also, is it just me or
    Does Amelie not look a lot like Maria from Silent Hill 2. I feel like there are intentional but extremely subtle visual and aural references to Silent Hill but maybe I’m reading too much into things.

    I would describe this game as Shadow of the Colossus meets 2001 A Space Odyssey meets Lonesome Road DLC from Fallout New Vegas meets Silent Hill 2 meets Skate 3 meets Death Stranding.
